Subject: This is why I fell in love with the Grateful Dead.
The interplay among the boys on the entire cryptical/drums/other one/me and my uncle/other one segment is so spot on. Phil is certainly taking the lead role, but Jerry, Keith, Bobby, and the 8 armed serpent drummers are right there in lock step. IMHO, this is Keith's best performance. Although Giants '92 is the best Other One I saw in person, I think this is my favorite of all time...superb in every way. This is as close to perfection as it gets, as the boys are just smokin' fire on this one. And then, if you sufficiently enjoyed that, listen on to the NFA>GDTRFB>NFA as it is also a top 5 performance of that combo. Oh, and I just realized that there was no 8 armed serpent in December 1971; this is just Billy although listening to this performance, one could see why I could mistake this for having Mickey as well.

Excellent Soundboard audio. Nice Stereo mix. Clean recording. Great download, I recommend it.

I also recommend The Dead show on June 21, 1971 at Chateau d'Herouville, Herouville, France, but not the first 6 tracks due to poor sound quality, but after that, man is it good. Especially Cryptical Envelopment. Check it out.

Reviewer: tree-ap - favoritefavoritefavoritefavoritefavorite - June 14, 2006
Subject: TOO
First heard the Cryptical>Drums>TOO>Uncle>TOO back in '91 or '92 ( has it really been that long?) after taping it from the GD Hour with David Gans interviewing Phil about Charles Ives & where the GD got the idea of songs melting into one another---this sequence was used to illustrate the point. It was quite a mind-blowing performance!!! I lost the tape quite a long time ago, so it brings back memories of driving my Bus on the backroads w/a little TotalHeadClearing dankness swimming in my brain. Whether this performance measures up to anyone else's 5 STAR gauge doesn't matter---it's ALL in how it makes YOU FEEL!!!

Subject: Where's Bob? Nice '71 board, though...
Yes, Keith fans will be happy, but I found it difficult to find Bob's rythym guitar. Otherwise all is rockin', especially the Cryptical>TOO>MAMU>TOO seg. Show 4 stars, sound 4 stars. Where's set I SBD???

Subject: Keith fans rejoyce
Not a complete show but generally excellent sound. Good stereo definition. Fans of Keith will be glad to find that he's not washed out in the mix.
